Gracie's nanny wrote this update:
Gracie is now able to sit upright and crawls by herself. She can grasp toys near her and is able to change them from one hand to another. She enjoys observing her surroundings and recognizes her name being spoken. She has a big, beautiful smile and enjoys hugs. She has established a routine diet and normal sleeping pattern. She enjoys the company of adults and the games they play with her.
For those unfamiliar with Gracie's story.... Gracie arrived at New Day Foster Home in China last fall while I was volunteering. I instantly fell in love with her. Despite coming from poverty conditions, suffering from malnourishment, and needing heart surgery Gracie was sweetest and happiest baby I had ever met. After returning to the U.S., I decided to sponsor Gracie for the year. As a result, I receive monthly updates on Gracie's progress. Notice how tiny Gracie is in the photo with me and how much she's changed since last fall. What a difference; God is good!
